The nearly two-minute-long clip features a tail-less horse and a confused Kalaiyarasan who finds himself with a horsetail. The lines blur between the two scenarios as Kalaiyarasan finds himself with the horse wondering about its missing tail. In a parallel scenario, the actor wakes up to find a tail on his back.
Ranjith had announced the film and released the first look poster of Kuthiraivaal in August and called it a magic realism film.
The film is directed by Manoj Leonel Jahson and Shyam Sunder and is presented by Pa Ranjith. Kuthiraivaal is bankrolled by Vignesh Sundaresan, Yaazhi film, and Neelam Productions. It stars Kalaiyarasan and Anjali Patil in the lead roles. On the technical front, Karthik Muthukumar will handle the camera and MKP Gridaran will be on the edit. Pradeep Kumar and Maarten Visser have been roped in to compose the music. G Rajesh has penned the screenplay and dialogues.
Kalaiyarasan was last seen in Nayanthara-starrer Airaa in 2019. The actor is currently waiting for the release of three films, including China by director Harshavardhana, M Janakiraman’s Titanic Kadhalum Kavundhu Pogum, and Sriram D Prasath’s Puthiya Mugam.
Meanwhile, Pa Ranjith’s Neelam Productions earlier had produced Pariyerum Perumal and Irandam Ulagaporin Kadaisi Gundu. Ranjith is currently working with Arya on Salpetta. The boxing film will be bankrolled by K9 Studioz with Anbariv handling the stunts. Actors Kalaiyarasan, Dushara Vijayan, John Kokken, and Santhosh Prathap are also reportedly part of the film. According to reports, it is suggested that Ranjith has two more directorial ventures ahead.
